The Sciences Po curriculum blends financial and legal expertise and professional skills courses. The International Finance and Law (Dual Degree with the University of Pennsylvania Law School) is designed to offer advanced education in the area of financial law and to give students the opportunity to develop a top-level career in the private, public or non-profit sectors.
All students will spend their first year at Sciences Po, and their second year at Penn Law. After two years of study, and provided credits have been completed in both institutions, students will receive Master's degrees from both Sciences Po (Master's in Finance and Strategy or Master's in Economics and Business) and Penn Law (LL.M.).
The faculty involved in this program is comprised of internationally renowned academics and practitioners. By joining both the Penn Law and Sciences Po communities, dual degree students will be able to benefit from the exceptionally stimulating intellectual environment of both institutions during the duration of the program, and as alumni to extend their networks and opportunities to both sides of the Atlantic.
Students participating in the program will have access at both Sciences Po and at the University of Pennsylvania to all facilities normally offered to students, such as libraries, computer network, career services, sports facilities, and student associations and cultural life.
